In the contemporary world, our everyday lives are plagued with several stressors.
A 2018 Mental Health Foundation statistics(1) say about 74% of UK adults were overwhelmed and unable to cope due to stress at some point in the previous year.
Managing a difficult boss and challenging workload, cleaning up your financial mess, family issues, and general day-to-day responsibilities can cause several degrees of damages to our overall wellbeing.
After a stress-filled day, massage therapy could be blissful.
Too often, stress degenerates into anxiety, depression, insomnia, and other debilitating psychological effects – Needless to mention, physical effects, including pain and inflammation, are common.
Thankfully, your body has a built-in mechanism, named the Parasympathetic Nervous System or (PSNS)(2), designed to manage stress and its resultant effects.
Well hasn’t it been a crazy year? I can remember people talking about some sort of virus going around and it was difficult for anyone to have realised that we would go into a full lockdown.
When lockdown was announced in the UK, it was a frenzy for buying rations and the World would never be the same again.
The government set out a plan to help save lives and protect the NHS and one of those ways, was to close down high risk businesses. These unfortunately included those that conduct massage therapy due to the close proximity of client and therapist, as well as the hands on nature of the business.
Due to the success of controlling the virus from spreading on July the 13th the government announced that massage therapy work could resume.
From the above graph you can see that since July the 13th we are almost back to square one or if not worse and that we must be even more careful going forward.
